Noteable Quote – I cannot believe I am quoting this sick individual….but he’s right

by Skip

Sigh – I really don’t even want to use the “a stopped clock” phrase here either.  But:

Majority rule only works if you’re also considering individual rights. Because you can’t have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

 - Larry Flint, Hustler magazine

From RedState, this comment on that quote: Apparently, the wolves have already decided what’s for supper, and Americans making more than $250,00 per year are the main course.

    And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why the US Constitution guarantees that it will be a WELL ARMED sheep in any such dispute!

    The carbon tax, all Americans. The federal sales tax, all Americans. The VAT tax, all Americans. The quarter millionaire tax is a game and will float the govt for 1 week.

      Hey Sam, WHY do you want to give the Feds even MORE revenue streams with which to fleece us if they can’t demonstrate restraint with the ones we all ready have?? Giving them 3 more (potentially HUGE) revenue streams is like showing a crack addict a truck load of full of that stuff – the only problem in this case is that a surfeit of cash won’t kill the spendthrift politician (darn it). Why do you wish to make all of us sheep, ready for the slaughter??

      How about this – ramping down spending to, you know, actually meet revenues?

    Skip –
    Even I draw the line at Larry Flint. He may be right on this, but he’s so yuckie the message gets lost in the goo.

      I know – this SocCon had the veritable shakes as the tips tapped the keys thinking if I will burn in hell for quoting him. The message was right but the messenger all bad….
